Law + tech news round-up

Yet another intellectual property inquiry was announced; ABC Reporter, Will Ockenden shared his mobile phone metadata,  there was much discussion of the Ashley Madison Hack and Timothy Pilgrim has been re-appointed as Australia’s Privacy Commissioner (just weeks after being appointed acting Information Commissioner).

That’s just some of the law + tech news from the past week. Happy reading.

Weekly news round-up

The big law + tech story this past week came on Friday as Dallas Buyers Club were refused access to the details of alleged “pirates”. So no letters at this stage.

In news that didn’t make the headlines, a biometric data collection bill passed the Senate despite concerns over the wide expansion of powers. The opposition’s proposed amendments to the Bill weren’t accepted, and the Privacy Impact Assessment conducted months ago by the Department of Immigration was only tabled at the close of the second reading debate in the Senate. And we don’t currently have anyone appointed to the role of Privacy Commissioner.

That’s just some of the law + tech news from the past week. Happy reading.
